Impact of Helicobacter pylori and/or Helicobacter pylori–related metabolic syndrome on incidence of all-cause and Alzheimer's dementia">Impact of Helicobacter pylori and/or Helicobacter pylori–related metabolic syndrome on incidence of all-cause and Alzheimer's dementia

Beydoun et al. [1], investigated in a large national retrospective cohort study the association of Helicobacter pylori (Hp) seropositivity with an incidence of all-cause and Alzheimer’s disease (AD) dementia and with AD dementia mortality. Data were extracted from the National Health and Nutrition Surveys III, phase 1 (1988–1991), and 1999–2000 and Read & Research Alzheimer’s More

New research finds that risk factors affecting the health of our blood vessels — such as smoking, obesity, or diabetes — may also impair brain health. Read & Research Alzheimer’s More

Could sleep apnea be a risk factor for Alzheimer's?">Could sleep apnea be a risk factor for Alzheimer's?

A preliminary study has unearthed a potential link between sleep apnea and tau tangles, which are the neurological hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease. Read & Research Alzheimer’s More

Cerebrospinal fluid biomarkers of neurodegeneration, synaptic integrity, and astroglial activation across the clinical Alzheimer's disease spectrum">Cerebrospinal fluid biomarkers of neurodegeneration, synaptic integrity, and astroglial activation across the clinical Alzheimer's disease spectrum

We investigated relations between amyloid-β (Aβ) status, apolipoprotein E (APOE) ε4, and cognition, with cerebrospinal fluid markers of neurogranin (Ng), neurofilament light (NFL), YKL-40, and total tau (T-tau). Read & Research Alzheimer’s More

Failure to detect an association between self-reported traumatic brain injury and Alzheimer's disease neuropathology and dementia">Failure to detect an association between self-reported traumatic brain injury and Alzheimer's disease neuropathology and dementia

Recent research with neuropathologic or biomarker evidence of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) casts doubt on traumatic brain injury (TBI) as a risk factor for AD. We leveraged the National Alzheimer’s Coordinating Center to examine the association between self-reported TBI with loss of consciousness and AD neuropathologic changes, and with baseline and Read & Research Alzheimer’s More

This sleep disorder puts people at 'very high risk' of Parkinson's">This sleep disorder puts people at 'very high risk' of Parkinson's

A large study found that those who experience a certain sleep disorder are also at high risk of Parkinson’s disease, but this knowledge can aid prevention. Read & Research Alzheimer’s More

A recent systematic review suggests that exercise improves not only motor function in people with Parkinson’s disease, but also their memory. Read & Research Alzheimer’s More

Emerging cerebrospinal fluid biomarkers in autosomal dominant Alzheimer's disease">Emerging cerebrospinal fluid biomarkers in autosomal dominant Alzheimer's disease

Four less well-studied but promising “emerging” cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers are elevated in late-onset Alzheimer disease (AD): neurogranin, synaptosomal-associated protein-25 (SNAP-25), visinin-like protein 1 (VILIP-1), and chitinase-3-like protein 1 (YKL-40).

Parkinsonism in MCI or mild Alzheimer's disease">Parkinsonism in MCI or mild Alzheimer's disease

Examining 106 subjects aged 60-97 years, Sasaki [1] recently found parkinsonism (rigidity, resting tremor, reduced dopamine transporter in basal ganglia) in 52.8% of cases with mild cognitive impairment (MCI; n = 63) or mild Alzheimer’s disease (AD; n = 43). Their mean age (80.6 ± 6.1 SD years) was significantly higher than those without extrapyramidal signs (EPS) Read & Research Alzheimer’s More
